Hi again.

It's going to be hard to do without being able to use the logo. Maybe
just having the typical plug/connector will do. The big question remains
the context/name. Unidentified-device-usb? io-usb? connector-usb?
bus-usb? controller-usb? Rodney, help! :) For the generic memory -
memory? memory-ram? 

Wrt the favorites icon, I don't think it's implied that an emblem cannot
be used on its own and is only overlaid on top of another item.
Duplicating the very same icon is not a good idea. I see it perfectly
appropriate to use it the way you do in the interface.

Thanks for all your suggestions.
