  • After a New York Times article last week revealed Google had given a $90-million "golden parachute" to an executive accused of sexual misconduct, a group of female engineers plan to walk off the job later this week, according to BuzzFeed. More than 200 Googlers will participate in the protest.
  • Walmart is going up against Amazon with a new Sam's Club location similar to an Amazon Go store. At the Dallas warehouse store, shoppers will be able to use their phones to locate and buy items. However, unlike Amazon Go, a cashier will still oversee checkout.
