The young Jobs, who in retrospect comes across as an excellent liar, somehow won the bid for the project."Jobs never did a lick of engineering in his life. He had me snowed," Alcorn later recalled. "It took years before I figured out that he was getting Woz to 'come in the back door' and do all the work while he got the credit."Jobs convinced Wozniak to NBA Live Mobile Coins work on the game during his day job at Hewlett-
