Here's a look at the top business and tech headlines from Cheddar on News 12:

-Atlanta-based airline company Delta is pledging $1 billion over the next decade to be the first carbon-neutral airline.

-Social networking giant Facebook is launching Hobbi, a new app for photo sharing. The app is described as a way to "capture and organize your creative process," such as cooking, fitness, or home decor.

-Uber riders in Arizona can now book rides by dialing 1-833-USE-UBER. Much like the app, riders will receive an upfront price. Uber's phone service is meant to help those who do not have the app. It's currently part of a pilot program.
