Some careless bloke left his Nintendo DS Lite lying around where the dog could get his mouth on it, chewing it to the mangled state you see here. If the guy would have gotten himself a pet-shocking torture device such as this, his DS Lite would still be intact.

Calling Nintendo customer service, the hapless hound owner discovered that the company was gracious enough to charge him just $50 to repair it, which will probably amount to a full replacement. Imagine that—a new unit for a third of the retail price. If only all customer service operated this way.
