USB 3.0 or Thunderbolt external HD?

Hello,

I just  picked up a new iMac 27" with 3TB fusion HD.

Questions

For Time Machine:    How big hard drive, and should I get it with USB 3.0 or Thunderbolt?

For back up drive for iPhoto or Aperture:   How big hard drive, and should I get it with USB 3.0 or Thunderbolt?

Any brand recommendations?

Thanks.
