He absolutely reinvented the light bulb. The only invention of note that he actually did himself was the phonograph, which admittedly had its' own impact. Edison took existing inventions from a staff , like Nikola Tesla, who worked under him and commercialized them. He was a good, even visionary, business man, like Jobs, not an amazing inventor like George Washington Carver or Nikola Tesla.
