Happy Friday! On this morning's show: Kohl's & Aldi are teaming up, should non-smokers get extra vacation time, the reason why your selfie doesn't look right and more!
Here are 3 of the top things people were curious about over the past 24 hours:
Holi--A lot of people were googling this. (I did because it showed up on my phone calendar and I had no idea what it was.) It is South Asia's Spring Festival.
Weather--This was a hot...er, cold...topic because a strong nor'easter is predicted for our friends to the north, so people were googling everything from New York & Boston weather to school closings.
Xbox Live--Gamers everywhere freaked out when there was an Xbox Live outage yesterday.

Survey of the day: Should non-smokers in the workplace get extra time off to compensate them for the time off smoking coworkers get for smoke breaks? According to USA Today, a new survey from e-cigarette maker Halo find that 42% of non-smokers said they deserve 3 to 5 extra vacation days a year--and 28% of smokers said they think that is fair.

Can't seem to get that SELFIE right? There may be a reason why. Turns out that those close up shots make our noses look 30% bigger.

One suggestion for better pics, experts recommend that the camera needs to be 5 feet away to get an accurate representation of you.
