He did 'invent' some things, that is improve them to be actually working. The phonograph for example, I'd assume he did that himself, as well as multiplex telegraph systems. But it seems like his main strength would have been enterprise and business. But then you'd have to think, with what he achieved, business wise, couldn't you consider him a 'genius' just trough that?

Yes Tesla was smarter but you still can't deny Edison as a genius of immense impact. He's may not be the best player ever but he's still a first-ballot hall of famer.
