Everyone loves it when the tech engineers at iFixit or iSuppli tear down new and old technologies to see the tech that's under the proverbial hood. (See this recent one of the famed Atari 2600.) \n\nIn a similar vein, CIO.com is launching a semi-regular feature that "tears down" the most popular and talked-about people, events and products in the high-tech world. \n\nToday's teardown: Oracle CEO Lawrence J. Ellison. \n\nAs the leader of the behemoth software, hardware and database vendor, Ellison is known for attacking competitors, winning at all costs and acquiring what he wants, when he wants.
