New Apple CEO Tim Cook e-mailed his employees this morning to reassure them, in the wake of Steve Jobs' resignation , of his commitment to Apple's core tenets, according to a leak reported by Ars Technica.

From the e-mail:

I want you to be confident that Apple is not going to change. I cherish and celebrate Apple's unique principles and values. Steve built a company and culture that is unlike any other in the world and we are going to stay true to that--it is in our DNA. We are going to continue to make the best products in the world that delight our customers and make our employees incredibly proud of what they do.
