          Hi,

          That depends on how your data has come in. If you're data from the server is in RSS or XML form, whenever you get data, keep track (using file or an sqlite database) of when you got. Next time you check the RSS or XML, compare and see if you already have it or not. Depending upon that, it can be considered as new.
