Pundits and investors keep whining that Tim Cook isn't Steve Jobs and that Apple's doomed, blah blah blah.

Well Tim's already taking a page out of the Steve Job's-customer-relations playbook and is reportedly responding to emails congratulating him on his new position as CEO of Apple.

The current favorite is Tim's response to Justin R., a fan of Tim's alma mater, Auburn university. Tim's response shows his everlasting love of Auburn, includes the school's battle cry, "War Eagle Forever!"

UPDATE: The Auburn battle cry is "War Eagle" or "War Damn Eagle!"

We look forward to the birds of prey-themed OS XI. [MacRumors]
