FWIW, the reference librarians on staff are highly capable of steering you toward the correct resources for that type of research. Asking such a query here won't help IME.

Message board probably isn't the best place for this

A tech based message board probably isn't the best place to get answers for something like this. I'll give you an interesting tidbit that shows you what a huge impact cell phones have had though. People have pointed out that if cell phones were as widespread as they are now, almost every episode of Seinfeld would be pointless- all the problems could be solved if the characters were able to communicate instantly. Take that for what it is worth.
