    Is it able to use iPad as iphoto backup in case computer failure or stolen? Are synchronized photos are exactly same as the ones on Mac?

    The photos are resized before being moved to the iPad. So no I would not rely on it as a backup device

    After you start TM... then subscribe to an online backup service. They are very inexpensive... and it is a great service to have automatic offsite backup. I recommend Mozy and Crashplan as two good services.
