No, these are NOT the headquarters of Lloyds TSB. These are the HQ's of Lloyds Insurance Brokers, which have absolutly nothing to do with the bank Lloyds TSB.

In defense of Microsoft, their recent buildings have been more like 6 stories with underground parking. Still suburban, but much denser.

(I support Microsoft because they're the home team...but I get so frickin LIVID about the stupid aspects of their software. Like when my cursor goes over a drop-down menu, these moronic ******* text things pop up, blocking part of the menu!!)
