US (CNN): In the game of bragging rights, Oracle CEO Larry Ellison now has one over his fellow billionaire Richard Branson: his private island is bigger.
Ellison has bought about 98% of Lana'I, the sixth-largest island in Hawaii -- and one that's more than 1,000 times larger than the private island that Branson owns in the British Virgin Islands.
The governor of Hawaii confirmed the sale of the 140-square mile island Wednesday, but didn't say how much it went for.
