I would wait for proper calibrated science camera images before making any conclusion as to the color of the soil

This belongs to updates too, #ChangE has totally peaked the twitter trends for last few hours. A lot of "how come i didnt know about this?" comments : )

Didnt make the front page of reddit at all, but obviously peaked http://www.reddit.com/r/space/
 
Nelson Mandela remains the top story on many news sites and Yutu is about 4th-5th one down the list on western sites.

Is this true??

Distance between Lunokhod 1 and Chang'e-3 is around 250 miles. No way to travel ;-) next time.

Considering that Lunokhod-2 clocked 40+ km on the odometer in just a few months .. it's not entirely out of the realm of possibility, but Yutu will have other things to do than chase the remains of distant relatives around

Aren't nuclear batteries going to last 30 years? ;-) (unfortunately not)

It's not powered by "nuclear batteries" - it is powered by solar cells. It does have a radioisotope heater unit ( RHU ) onboard to keep it warm.

Chang E does not exceed 15 degrees tilt rabbit can safely release

[Chang E does not exceed 15 degrees inclination, the rabbit will be able to safely release] 14 evening, China's Chang-e III detector Enron sangrakwol. Sunze Zhou told reporters the chief architect of the detector system, as long as the lander tilt angle less than 15 degrees, the next inspection device, the "Rabbit" was the rover will be able to be released. Currently, researchers are calculated sangrakwol ground attitude. (Yu Xiaojie Li Zhihui)
In English...: ground check reveals maximum tilt 15 NOT exceeded: rover confirmed to be able to deploy.

That's why I wrote "(unfortunately not)" and added a smiley.
