Technology shares are generally higher in pre-bell trading.

In technology stocks news, BlackBerry Ltd's ( BBRY ) board does not believe a break-up of the Canadian smartphone maker is currently in its best interests, even though Microsoft Corp ( MSFT ), Apple Inc ( AAPL ) and Lenovo Group Ltd, among others, have expressed interest in acquiring parts of the company, according to people familiar with the discussions, Reuters reported over the weekend.

And Amazon ( AMZN ) said the U.S. Postal Service will start delivering packages on Sundays in the Los Angeles and New York metropolitan areas. The service will be available to Amazon Prime members who receive unlimited, free two-day shipping.

The service will be rolled out to other cities in 2014, among others Dallas, New Orleans and Phoenix in 2014. AMZN edged higher in pre-market trade.
