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 and CNET News are said to be combining; CBS is trimming back,, and GameSpot, CNET's entertainment properties.

Quite a time to be out of work, too.
