Google Insights Scrapping Problem

Hi, I want to extract the category information returned by Google Insights when you search a certain keyword. For example, when I search "Apple", there return would be like:

Web Search Interest: apple

Worldwide, 2004 - present

Categories: Computers & Electronics (25-50%), Entertainment (0-10%), Food & Drink (0-10%)
And the fields behind "Categoires" are the strings that I want to scrap from Google Insights. I have tried to parse the returned HTML by sending request to Insights,but it seems Google used AJAX and every HTML returned are the same default one. Is there any other ways to solve this problem? Thanks very much.
