Magnetic monopoles!

According to the OT:

"A disk drive's write head magnetises an area of grains (a bit) with either a north pole or a south pole using an electrical field."

Holy cow, they're creating magnetic monopoles!

How have I missed this news?

I assume it'll be champagne and Nobel prizes all-round at the next Western Digital company picnic.
