Appleinsider reports that the upcoming Mac mini will not have a built-in iPod dock that had been previously rumored in November.

Apple has reportedly scrapped such plans for a built-in iPod dock at least once before. The site speculates that the reasons include sacrificing an additional revenue stream as well as limitations in future upgrades to the dock connector.

Similar specs were predicted in November, but no confirmation of Digitial Video Recorder (DVR) software is available.
