(KCBS)– It’s Halloween and our KCBS Technology Analyst Larry Magid has tips on where to find spooky sounds online for some scary pleasure.

Magid has some high tech ways to frighten trick or treaters. He said he puts an iPod plugged into some speakers or a laptop by the front door and when the kids come to the door he pushes a button and makes the festivities a little bit creepier.

Magid has links on his website, LarrysWorld.com, to some free sounds. Magid said he finds lot of things on YouTube, which means you don’t have to worry about malware.

KCBS Technology Analyst Larry Magid:

On Magid’s website, there is also a link to an video on CNET where they show you how you can put these sounds anywhere.

“You can put them on your person, or in a goody bag or in a Jack ‘O Lantern,” Magid said.

Magid said the technology is now so inexpensive that you can buy what you need for portable scariness for just $30 or so.
