Because being an obnoxious bajillionaire wasn't satisfying enough, Oracle CEO Larry Ellison has decided to buy majority of the "Pineapple Island" in Hawaii.
Hawaii Gov. Neil Abercrombie told the Associated Press that Ellison is in the process of purchasing 98 percent of
the island of Lanai from its current owner, Castle & Cooke Inc. The sale price for the 141-square-mile island wasn't clear, but the Maui News previously reported that the asking price for the island was somewhere between $500 million and $600 million.
Naturally, both the current owner and Ellison were too busy taking over the world to take calls from the media yesterday.
