Question regarding writes speeds on CF card for digital camera's

I have the canon powershot S70 digital camera (non SLR). My CF memory card has a write speed of 80x.
My friend told me that the write speeds only apply to digital SLR camera's, so there was no point in me buying a high write speed. Is this true? or is he talking all s**t.

What would SLR have to do with it?

If you want to take rapid successive pictures you'll need a faster card.

that's what I thought, so I'm not quite sure what he was talking about.
