You switch between cards using a button on the device, you add them to the card via a phone app and an attached card swiper, and as it's linked to your phone, it'll alert you if you get too far away from the card (in the case of leaving it on a table and walking away, or forgetting your wallet on the way out of the house, for example).

    This is Wikipedia's table of Keyboard shortcuts, for pretty much every operating system you could ever want. There are even some command-line-interface shortcuts for Windows near the bottom of the page.
