Not only is this a major bummer for me, as I love using PadMapper, I don't see why craigslist would do this. Not only did it make craigslist apartment listings actually usable, but it must be driving a fair amount of traffic to them as well. Perhaps if craigslist was about to launch something similar I could understand, but I think we all know that is not going to happen.

I'm no MS shill, but I am truly impressed by MS's new maps.live.com. They have 3d imaging with a firefox plugin, satellite images with map overlays, and best of all is their birds eye view option which really lets you get a close view of things. You can also rotate N, S, E, or W angles to view things.
I do find it interesting that they seem to intentionally pixelate some locations."
