A lawyer for RadioShack on Friday said the bankrupt electronics chain would accept all kinds of bids for its assets, including from liquidators, although any transaction would require court approval. RadioShack, which filed for Chapter 11 protection on Thursday, has a tentative deal to sell as many as 2,400 of its 4,100 stores to an affiliate of hedge fund Standard General, its lender and largest shareholder. As part of that deal, wireless company Sprint Corp would operate within those stores. But any better bids, which RadioShack lawyer David Fournier said could include liquidation offers, may trump that deal. "We don't know exactly where we're going to end up," Fournier said at a hearing in U.S. Bankruptcy Court in Delaware. RadioShack, which posted 11 straight quarterly losses after failing to transform itself into a destination for mobile phone buyers, hopes to avoid the fate that plagues many bankrupt retailers: liquidation.

Apple Inc's (AAPL.O) healthcare technology is spreading quickly among major U.S. hospitals, showing early promise as a way for doctors to monitor patients remotely and lower costs. Fourteen of 23 top hospitals contacted by Reuters said they have rolled out a pilot program of Apple's HealthKit service - which acts as a repository for patient-generated health information like blood pressure, weight or heart rate - or are in talks to do so. The pilots aim to help physicians monitor patients with such chronic conditions as diabetes and hypertension. Apple rivals Google Inc (GOOGL.O) and Samsung Electronics (005930.KS), which have released similar services, are only just starting to reach out to hospitals and other medical partners. Such systems hold the promise of allowing doctors to watch for early signs of trouble and intervene before a medical problem becomes acute. That could help hospitals avoid repeat admissions, for which they are penalized under new U.S. government guidelines, all at a relatively low cost. The U.S. healthcare market is $3 trillion, and researcher IDC Health Insights predicts that 70 percent of healthcare organizations worldwide will invest by 2018 in technology including apps, wearables, remote monitoring and virtual care. Those trying out Apple's service included at least eight of the 17 hospitals on one list ranking the best hospitals, the U.S. News & World Report's Honor Roll. Google and Samsung had started discussions with just a few of these hospitals. More»
