  • In 2005, Neal Nueller attempted a climb of Mount Everest. As he ascended and air pressures decreased, many electronics on his person - including several laptops and MP3 players, among other things - broke as a result, but his DS stood strong, and was even playable at the top of the mountain.

  • Exclusive to Japanese DS consoles, there was an option to connect to Nintendo WFC via a portable Wi-Fi router (Simple Start Wi-Fi). These were almost exclusively used in Japan, and thus this option was removed internationally. However, it can still be accessed (even though Nintendo WFC is now useless); tutorials for doing so can be found online.

  • The instruction manual includes instructions for setting up and inputting a WEP key from your router. The example key shown at that point in the manual is "8675309", likely referencing the 1981 song "867-5309: Jenny" by Tommy Tutone.
