Nice questions. :)
When you talked about PR of the amazon and youtube search results were you refering to the PR of the landing page in the search results or the PR of the links going to the landing page in the search results?
I am referring to the page result it has in Google for that specific search.
Also do you think that Google is now putting more value into the PR of a page than they have before?
Page rank still matters (but not the same as it did years before). Nonetheless, page rank is still one of the determining factors in Google when it comes to ranking for a specific keyword/keyphrase.
Also, though many would say that page rank is irrelevant now and that this only serves as a "bragging" right for web owners, I do believe that when your site gains higher page rank, you know you're doing the right things in terms of quality.
So yes, page rank still has its importance. :)
