The Interface Formerly Known as USB

Today at work I was marking a computer that we upgraded to a new model, of course leaving the node name intact. Of course, I labelled it "The Computer Formerly Known As ATHLETIC_TICKET" and therefore felt the need to label it accordingly with some variant of the prince symbol. It was at this moment that I realized that the USB symbol has an uncanny resemblance to the TAFNAP logo.

Here's the prince logo:

And the USB logo:

A quick Google didn't reveal anyone else who noticed such things, so I may be crazy. But on the sticky note, I drew some combination of the two, and thanks to the wonders of graphics, sketched up a slightly better version just now:

Also on the subject of similarities, Rhythmbox just served up The Fool On the Hill by the Beatles, and it reminded me of the tragic Goodbye May Seem Forever from the classic Fox and the Hound. Also, watching that clip, and the actual scene, makes me very sad. I haven't seen that movie in a very long time...poor grandma. That movie is way too sad to be a kid's movie.
