Subject Re: sans sudo on npm install

Indeed. Although "sans sudo on npm install", we cannot hold the hand of the
developer during throughout the entirety use of npm on their machine.

However some simple text + links (based on [1]) such as this would do the
trick no?

2. Install the Cordova utility.
`npm install cordova`

Pointers:
*If you installed node with sudo you will need to use prefix the above with
sudo - link[2]
*Prefix install with -g flag to install globally - link[3]
