How to Install Perl Packages Without PPM of ActiveState ?

This Post is strictly not Web 2.0. I had to write this to let others know how top install PPM [Perl Package Manager, GUI Interface] without the ActiveState Login. If you’ve been using ActiveState Perl, then you could have easily upgraded using ppm on the command prompt. However, when I tried, I got the following error message

Installing package …
Downloading Tree-Builder-0.1.0 … redirect
Downloading Tree-Builder-0.1.0 … failed 401 Authorization Required
Installing package failed

ERROR: 401 Authorization Required

Now just try to compile the perl file using the command perl -c and you will end up getting reference to packages which are not installed. See Scrreen Shot Below,

Goto CPAN and download the TAR of the same. Untar using WinRAR or any other utility and now browse to the Path which was shown in the error message when you compiled the file and arrange the directory / files of the package onto those locations and you are all set. In the above Example all I had to do is goto perl/lib/HTML and stick in and similarly the other file.

Now re-open the command prompt and try to compile the error must vanish. Atleast it did for me.

Can somebody tell me how to Authenticate myself using PPM ? Sorry have no time and slogging tonight to complete a project.


Mobile Chipset – Fabless getting Faster and Better

China produced over 800mn smartphones in 2012 and 226mn smartphones. China’s smartphone output should exceed 400mn in 2013 with exports reaching 60-80mn. At the same time, Mediatek expressed confidence that its quad-core chipsets can enable China OEMs to sell smartphones with similar specs to the Samsung Galaxy S3 at one third of the price.

Meanwhile, ARM has showcased its big.LITTLE chipset, a game changer in the performance/power race. As big.LITTLE finds its way into low-priced phones, we expect chipset ASPs to fall even further, albeit with higher volumes. With big.LITTLE chipset expected in tablets this year (10m targets) and in phones perhaps next year (with an integrated chipset) and LTE modem ramping in Q4Cheaper chipsets could ultimately accelerate tablet demand in China and other EMs, as consumers move away from notebooks.

China’s Mobile Music Market Tops $ 6Bn

China’s mobile music market totaled USD 6 Bn as of 2012, up 8.5% YoY. The number of mobile music users topped 832m ( the figure also includes those subscribers who obtain mobile music service through MMS and SMS). This can be attributed to the fact that mobile phones have become common music playing devices, and 2) improving mobile internet connections which enable users to more easily access online music through their smartphones and other devices.

iiMedia revealed that Duomi Music, Kugou Music, TTPod and Mobile QQ Music are currently the most popular mobile music apps in China, all of them being internet-based platforms. Duomi Music boasted a penetration rate of 57.6% among Chinese mobile music users in 2012.

Baidu Music is an increasingly competitive player in this space. Baidu has years of experience in music search, which enables users in finding their favorite music precisely and quickly. Meanwhile, Baidu Music boasts in-depth and legally legitimate music pool, which should serve to isolate Baidu from potential risks arising from copyright disputes.

LG Mobile SmartPhone Sales beat Forecast

South Korean electronics Major, LG Electronics reported solid 1Q13 results and raised 2013 smartphone guidance to 45m (from 35m at the beginning of the year) are positive signals supporting our thesis that LGE’s smartphone business is on the rebound.

LGE reported 10.3m smartphone shipment, slightly ahead of our 9.8m forecast, and confirmed that inventory remains lean. For 2Q13, we infer management is looking for ~20% qoq shipment growth (to 12m+), with handset OP potentially flat to up.

We expect LGE to generate shipment growth in 2Q, mostly through mass tier 3G (L-series) and LTE (F-series) smartphones, sidestepping direct competition with Samsung’s Galaxy S4. LG Management has indicated a solid pipeline of products through 2H13, with an anticipated Optimus G2 in 3Q followed by a product with flexible substrate in 4Q.
