What's wrong with buying CDs online

Alexis Madrigal seems to be dissing those who still buy CDs - his main beef - buying CDs online:

I do not understand them at all. Perhaps they are audiophiles who value the tiny difference between CD-quality and near-CD quality. Or perhaps they have dial-up modems that make downloading music difficult.

I just bought two Adele CDs - the prices of each were the same as the price of the album download. I neither have DSL nor dial-up modem. But he may still be right - I may be behind in the times - favoring old technology over new technology because now I have to spend time ripping them. And yes - I have yet to buy MP3s.
