Apple Pay
Apple first introduced Pay on the iPhone 6, implementing a Near Field Communication antenna for connecting to payment terminals. It hasn’t quite revolutionized the in-store buying experience, but the feature has quietly grown in the past year despite a head start by Android and Samsung. The software is compatible with more than 800 retail brands, and security features earn praise for utilizing the new iPhone’s Touch ID and a token-based payment system to prevent fraud. Currently available in the United States, United Kingdom, Australia and Canada, and slated to launch in China this year, Apple Pay is compatible with iPhone 6, 6s and Apple Watch. Free to users.

Yubico YubiKey
Digital security becomes more important than ever as we manage more aspects of our lives on the Internet with only a password standing between thieves and our personal information. Yubico offers an ingenious solution in the form of YubiKey, a flash drive device that acts like a “key” to your computer. YubiKey protects your information in two ways: by encrypting all your cloud-synced passwords and requiring you to insert the flash drive when logging in. Your computer will identify the device as a keyboard, allowing you to enter passwords with just a touch of the activation button, thereby preventing your accounts from remote hacking. $40–50.

Asus Chromebit CS10
It looks like a flash drive, but that’s actually an HDMI connection on the end. The Asus Chromebit is the latest addition to the growing family of “computers on a stick” that pack all the components of a PC in a tiny device that jacks into your television. The Chromebit comes with Chrome OS, designed to work on cloud-based software, though the device includes 16GB of storage for handling files. While downloading third-party software is limited, you have little reason to do so, as the device can run Amazon, Google Docs, Netflix and even the free online version of Microsoft Office. $84.99.
