Is is just me – or is the Talk intergration with Gmail / Google Mail down or stopped with everybody? That chat panel with your chattable contacts with little circles that were green if your contact was online etc. down the left hand side is now gone, as is the link to saved chats.(see: Ideal – Actual – ...

Also, searching Chat: ... and Talk: ... into the Help area leads no useful results. What's Happening?

It is just you! Have you changed your language away from English US? That deletes the Chat Service. By the look of the links you have switched to English GB. Switch back to US, I am a UKer myself and the difference is basically nothing – except you get all the new features when they are still new.

Thanks very much, guys – the problem was my language was set to English (UK). It's really tupid having the chat only in the US, but there you go. Again, thanks alot – everything is now working!
