Starting in early 2018, Amazon has hired me, Elias Saba, as an analyst on multiple occasions to asses new Amazon hardware devices prior to their release to the general public. I was paid a fee for my services and am unable to reveal further details due to a nondisclosure agreement. All hardware provided during the analysis was returned to Amazon after my assessment was complete. At no time did Amazon have any editorial control on AFTVnews articles other than limiting my ability to share knowledge of unreleased products via the nondisclosure agreement.
