The times, they are a-hard.

CNet's had a massive round of layoffs by CBS: most notably, Gamespot got the smackdown.

That's become clearer now, with the layoffs. The newsrooms for CBSNews.com and CNET News are said to be combining; CBS is trimming back TV.com, MP3.com, and GameSpot, CNET's entertainment properties. Which makes sense: Why run mainstream news and entertainment coverage out of a backwater like San Francisco, when it can be done properly from New York and L.A.?
Quite a time to be out of work, too.
