I think what people admire in Steve Jobs is some of his personal qualities like determination, perseverance, intelligence. Of course he was no saint, but the way he came rose from the ashes has been an inspiration for many people.
Regarding contribution, he made desktop computer a reality, which was taken up by windows later on. Earlier, Xerox had made a personal computer too, including a very expensive mouse. And Steve Jobs spent a day at Xerox looking at it. He did get his inspiration from there, but then he made into a whole new product that was available to the masses.
I don't think it's fair to compare him to Edison, they were totally different people. Steve Jobs was an entrepreneur through and through. Scientists do not care much about the limelight, they remain in the background. This was evident from the meager publicity that Dennis Ritchie's death got.
