Here comes clash of the titans 2006: Apple vs. Tivo.

Rumors are running rampant on the ‘Net that Apple will unveil a Mac mini with a built-in DVR next month at Macworld Conference & Expo in San Francisco, positioning itself to do to the DVR market what it’s doing for video downloads and digital music.

According to TV Week: “Industry experts consider DVR capability the logical next step for Apple, given that its video iPod has become a game changer for portable television content in the less than two months that it’s been on the market.”

This is pretty darn intriguing, given how inexpensive ($500) and awesome the Mac mini is.

But analysts also say there are several reasons why Apple wouldn’t be able to duplicate its iPod dominance in the DVR market. See why here.
