Legal "[...] tonight Apple entered into evidence in its trial with Samsung a document showing that it offered the South Korean company a licensing deal on some of its key technologies. Specifically, Apple offered to license the portfolio of patents if Samsung would pay $30 per smartphone and $40 per tablet." $30-40 per device is a lot of money for some trivial features (rounded corners, slide-to-unlock etc). No wonder Samsung declined.

"then why don't the companies Apple did all this stealing from sue

Because those companies aren't idiotic to sue for obvious design ideas like rectangular or circular shapes which don't need anyone to "invent" them. Those companies used them before Apple, yes. But these ideas are older than even those companies.

That's silly. Sony and Nokia are both going broke. Nokia for one sues so you can't say that about them.

If they could sue they would sue.
