The sapiens-neanderthalis interbreeding story still has legs:

http://www.nature.com/news/2010/100512/full/465148a.html
http://www.nytimes.com/2010/05/12/opinion/12wed4.html

http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/science/nature/8674068.stm
http://opinionator.blogs.nytimes.com/2010/05/11/kissing-cousins/

... and this item focuses on other 'interbreeding' possibilities:

http://www.newscientist.com/article/mg20627603.600-neanderthals-not-the-
only-apes-humans-bred-with.html

... and perhaps this explains things:

http://www.physorg.com/news192973370.html

... and what we can learn from it:

http://www.cyprus-mail.com/features/what-prehistoric-man-can-teach-moder

... and, of course, there's now an ipod app to morph you into a
Neanderthal:

EXPLORATOR is a weekly newsletter representing the fruits of
the labours of 'media research division' of The Atrium. Various
on-line news and magazine sources are scoured for news of the
ancient world (broadly construed: practically anything relating
to archaeology or history  prior to about 1700 or so is fair
game) and every Sunday they are delivered to your mailbox free of
charge!
