You're not allowed to do a cross domain ajax call:
you page hosting by www.apple.com can't get data on a page at www.microsoft.com

more info and workaround here for example :

http://usejquery.com/posts/9/the-jquery-cross-domain-ajax-guide
http://jquery-howto.blogspot.com/2009/04/cross-domain-ajax-querying-with-jquery.html

Just google for : ajax call cross domain


note cross protocol are not allowed to :
https://www.apple.com can't get a page on http://www.apple.com
