    Default Jobs or Woz?

    The following in red is confusing. Would you please rewrite it? Who is "he" there, Jobs or Woz?

    Jobs paid Woz---but just the $350 he was promised at the start...
    When Bushnell's bonus was disclosed in a book about Atari's history ten years later, long after the pair had founded Apple, Wozniak was truly hurt. He felt his good friend hasn't been honest and he had been betrayed.
    When Jobs heard about the book, he called his old friend and told him that he didn't remember keeping a bonus, and since he surely would have remembered it, "he probably didn't do it."

    I have understood the above as meaning "Jobs didn't remember getting the bonus from Bushnell, and because if he had received it, he would have remembered it, there's no possibility that he didn't give the fair share of the bonus to Wozniak." But I'm not sure.

    Thank you.

    "He" is Steve Jobs, and I think your understanding of the phrase is correct.
