Can we assume that google updates PR first, then the results as obviously it takes PR to determine a site's ranking!

Are we confusing "update" with "dance"?
I vote for backlink changes as it seems to be the ONLY definite indicator and has been reliable to date. When the backlinks change the SERPS soon follow so that seems reliable and unambiguous.
Suppose if the time between PR calculation an solid results (as apposed to everflux results) is non determined then backlinks it has to be.
Do you reckon Google purposley has fun with us as I know I would if I had my finger on the button!
p.s I don't think anyone can reliably predict the update - I've checked through the archives and the evidence just isn't there.
I also don't think Google are messing with our heads. Better to wait and not having serious problems i.e good sites disappearing all over the place.
I guess I just feel that Google is kinda like Disneyworld - there are a lot of people waiting to get on the ride, only a few people on the ride at this moment, and a growing number of people who have been on the ride. I figure it's quite possible that "Disneyworld" has opened for the month, but the initial updates might be "favored" sites which are used in the calculation of other sites.
Maybe I just don't have a clue what I'm talking about...<grin>
