It seems a strange choice to go for Virtual Earth over Google Maps when the BBC are using Google Maps elsewhere (e.g World on the Move). I assume the BBC must have different development teams / companies working on different projects.

The info windows wouldn't work for me after switching back from 3d to 2d as well. Even in 2d the whole map seems very laggy. I don't know how many tags there are - the map's speed suggests they are pushing the capabilities of Virtual Earth.

Or maybe I just need a new computer.
