ActiveResource problem with get req.

since i can not find any documentation on this stuff that helps any
i'm taking a stab at doing this...

    @gapiTranslate ="http://", ActiveResource::Formats[:json])

and it keeps returning INVALID JSON STRING in the browser... am i
making the request to good incorrectly or something... is this even
the right way to achieve what i hope it looks like im trying to do?


hmm.. i mean 'google'... not good. c'mon no takers on this? hehehe..
any kinda pointers to even good docs on this stuff?
