Walmart takes on Amazon Prime: The retail giant, which last year acquired Amazon competitor for $3 billion, is adding free two-day delivery for orders $35 and over and without membership fees (Amazon charges $99 a year).

Competing directly with Amazon is a big challenge. Walmart will now see if consumers prefer to trade membership fees (Walmart previously charged $49 per year) for a minimum order size. In any case, free two-day shipping has become "table stakes" in the online retail wars, said co-founder Marc Lore.

Google employees rally for immigration: On Monday, more than 2,000 Alphabet employees gathered to march and rally at various company locations worldwide in protest of Trump's recent immigration executive order.
