Should Apple have a Bloggers Slush fund?

Apple is HUGE! You already know that.

But what I was thinking is the extent that the blogging world fuels (for free) the Apple marketing machine.

Should Apple create a Bloggers slush fund, I mean lets face it they don’t need to but should they.

At last count there was 1,372,674* Apple related blogs on the internet.

Yes of course there are iTunes affiliate schemes and such. But wouldn’t it be a nice touch if they gave a tiny bit of their fortune back to the blogging world to say Hey Guys we love you too here’s a little money for one of those 300×250 spots you have.

*Made up statistic but it is probably really close!
