Here's the top online and technology trends you need to know about for Monday.

Dave Matthews found out the state motto is true, "You've got a friend in Pennsylvania."

One of his fans was on her way to his concert at Hershey Park when she helped Matthews make it to the show on time.

Emily Kraus and her boyfriend were on their way to see him perform when they saw him on the side of the road, stranded.

Matthews didn't have a cell phone with him and his bike had broke down.

The superstar hopped in the car and the fans were able to get him to his concert on time.

Matthews was so grateful that he invited Kraus and her boyfriend to dinner.

Then, they got to go backstage and enjoyed the show from the front row.

We're all human and that means sometimes mistakes happen.

But there are some mistakes that leave you wondering...what the heck happened?

Over the weekend, Nike's online store featured a Carolina Panthers t-shirt.

The problem is, the Panthers play in North Carolina and the shirt has an outline of South Carolina.

The shirt was taken down from the web site, but not before some of them could be sold.

Click here to see the t-shirt blunder.

Selfies, also known as pictures you take of yourself, are a big trend right now.

Now there's an app that will fix those facial imperfections we all have when taking pictures of ourselves or friends and family.

It's called Facetune and is said to be one of the most intuitive and advanced photo correcting apps available.

Of course beauty isn't free. The app will cost you $2.99.

Get the specs on the app here.

An adorable and heartwarming story of a sign in a hospital window has gone viral online.

In Los Angeles, a two-year-old girl who is battling cancer was in a local hospital for treatment.

To help boost her spirits, her parents helped her tape a sign in her fourth-floor window that read "Send Pizza" with her room number.

A Reddit user posted the picture online and soon the fourth floor was flooded with pizzas.

So much so that the hospital issued a statement thanking people for the pizzas, but that no more were needed.

Take a look at the viral photo here.
