Official captalizaion of ooma

Post by scoutconnor » Tue Jul 28, 2009 7:35 am

Bobby B. or Dennis P.,
What is the proper way to write ooma? Is it:
ooma
OOMA
Ooma
OOma
etc.

I was just wondering what the official rule on capitalization was. thanks!

I think ooma is correct since it is posted all over their website that way. However, it is difficult to not capitalize it since it is such a great product and isn't one of the rules to capitalize things that are "great" (e.g., Alexander the Great). :)

Haha, good question -- pretty much the company name has almost always been lowercase "ooma", but it'll soon be changing to be capitalized as "Ooma"

I'm going to be so confused when that happens. Will the new Ooma company be just as good as the old ooma company?

You bet, as you can see they have more "capital".

If you use caps for the first two letters:

OOma

and take a felt tip pen, you can make googely eyes out of the O's.

Might be a nice touch to highlight the Premier Google Voice Extensions.

Thanks for the update. What is the reason for the change?
